Col. Brian Howell, U.S. Army, Pacific, Contingency Command Post Humanitarian Assistance Survey Team, team leader at Camp Aguinaldo, Philippines, April 19. They are taking part in a combined-joint command post exercise focusing on combined-force planning and response to a disaster relief scenario, one part of the larger Exercise Balikatan 2012. About 20 soldiers from USARPAC and 13 from U.S. Army-Japan participated in the CPX as the U.S. Army forces command element. BK12 takes place from April 16-27, on Luzon and Palawan, Republic of the Philippines. Combined Philippine and U.S. service members also conducted a series of humanitarian civic assistance projects and field training exercises. Balikatan is a Filipino word meaning “shoulder-to-shoulder” and characterizes the spirit of the exercise.
